UV-C kitchen-extract technology is star of London hotel refurbishment

Extechnology
Extechnology’s UV-C system for controlling odour and grease in kitchen extract systems has been installed in this refurbished hotel.

The £20 million refurbishment of the Kensington Hotel in central London, a member of the Doyle Collection hotel group, includes Extechnology’s UV-C technology to provide odour and grease control for the kitchen extract system. This hotel is an amalgamation of four grand Victorian townhouses and offers 150 rooms and suites. The 9-month renovation project has restored the building to its former glory, with its original ceiling heights and volumes reinstated.

Four EXE UV-C units have been installed into the new kitchen-extract system. They generate ozone which breaks down odour, bacteria and grease — significantly reducing the need for cleaning ductwork. The only maintenance required by this type of system is tube replacement every 8000 h or once a year.

The UV-C tubes are mounted outside the ductwork or canopy in a self-contained chamber that is linked to the ductwork or canopy by two spigots, which is said to be easier to install than inline applications and require less maintenance.
